The Turnigy Accucel 6 Balance Charger utilises quality FET's and resistors to accurately balance and charge LiPoly and NiMH batteries. The Accucel-6 will handle LiPoly/LiFe up to 6S and NiMH/NiCd up to 15S and shows individual cell voltage during charge with realtime updates throughout the charge cycle. The intuitive menu system means charging and cycling is an easy process and can be done quickly and accurately either at the field by using a 12v input such as a car battery or at home with a 12v power supply. Bundled with the Accucel-6 is a bunch of input and output wires which should satisfy any charging requirement.
ATTENTION. There are several chargers now entering the China market that look similar to the Accucel. These chargers are produced with cheaper FET's and are unfortunately much less accurate and very unsafe. There has been reports of the copied chargers over-charging packs and not balancing correctly. The Accucel-6 is the first charger in the market with this PCB layout Circuit design. Any charger with the same circuit diagram is most definitely a copy. We have tested the copied chargers ourselves, their componentry is of a very low quality and the manufacturing company that has produced the copy has used a process of duplicating our CPU(MCU)'s hex file and flashed a similar chip(MCU) to produce a similar product. This means they do not have the original code and therefore cannot bug-test(QC) or update the charger at any point. Our chargers have CE and RoHS certification, proving their safety. Plus, thousands of customers the world over have used our chargers with excellent results. Your batteries are expensive. We understand this and thats why we will not carry low-quality charging devices. Trust only in TURNIGY® quality charging devices.
Features: • Microprocessor controlled • Delta-peak sensitivity (NiMH/NiCd) • Individual cell balancing • Li-ion, LiPoly and LiFe capable • Ni-Cd and NiMH capable • Large range of charge currents • Store function, allows safe storage current • Time limit function • Input voltage monitoring. (Protects car batteries at the field) • Data storage (Store up to 5 packs in memory) • Battery break in and cycling.

This charger has a JST-XH charge plug, which makes it compatible with Zippy, HXT, TURNIGY and any pack with a JST-XH adapter.
So is the international version different? I'm not sure what this whole calibration issue is and should I worry about it ordering from the US warehouse? I just need a charger that can charge 1s to 4s but if there seems to be a QC issue with these from the US warehouse I think I'll pass. What do you guys think buy or no? I'm new to this whole thing so I don't want to buy something that isn't gonna work.
I've have one of the older one with the calibration on it and don't use it , it's not that far off . for a cheep charger it been working for me the last year . I myself think it's a good charger for the price . never had a over charge . even my Onyx 245 is a little off also .
Input voltage errors are not due to the batteries, but to the power supply. Please, check your power supply specifications and actual performance. Power supply must be 60 to 75 watts or higher and the voltage must be between 11 and 17 volts. Check the voltage during charger operation. Must not fall below 11V. Hope you find this answer helpful. Best Regards!
Charger #2 now. Still inaccurate voltage readings......... Charger reads 16.79v on a batt that tests 16.54V. CAN'T turn down the calibration low enough to get a match. It DOES have the CAL feature too.
To cut things short, my search produced access to two "hidden" adjustments:
1. Press and hold "stop" and "inc" buttons during power on and you get a screen that looks as follows:
The XXXX is a 4 digit number that constantly changes, until it settles on a value, and (at least for me) the following screen appears:
VOL SET ERR
VOL REF XXXX
where the XXXX is the last number that was shown in the previous screen.
2. Press and hold "dec" and "enter" buttons while powering on and you get the following:
XX VOL: 12.52V
SAVE (ENTER) / CANCEL (STOP)
The XX value is adjustable from 20 to -20 and changes the value after VOL:
Then when you press "enter" the screen shows:
Have u tryed unlocking the feature
I have this charger and use it to balance charge all my Lipo and Life batteries, love it! It works well and you can monitor the balance as well as the charge and charge rate of the unit, works just like it should, the menu takes a little getting used to, but so do many of the fancier toys we all use. I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants a fairly priced balance charger with lots of features. I have used it for a while and am very happy with this charger.

Another great product! Charges and balances my LiPo's so much better than the stock chargers that came with my helis. Runs quiet and easy to use.

Love this charger. Well made , Bright backlit readout , easy to program . Can't touch a charger like this in the USA for under $60. Bought it because my Shultz isl 330-6 ($200) needed a new e-prom chip to update to LiFe charge and would not charge below 300ma for micro stuff.. The e-prom was on backorder and it was $30. A no brainer !!!! Like this one better anyway with balance connectors on the side so you can charge and balance at the same time. You GO Hobby King!!!

Awesome product!! Easy to use quality charger. I have 2 now and for the price will probably end up with 2 more. Does everything I need and more.

this product is great charging 40c 5000mah 2s batteries...but this item has been out of stock for MORE than 30 days (HK lied about the updated frequently)
